A Saint Patrick’s Yummy Recipe

Day 4 blog challenge

This recipe is my grandma nannies fluffy cheesecake recipe. I adapted it for celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day.




  • Mix Graham cracker crumbs, 1 tablespoon sugar, and melted butter or margarine.
  • Press Graham cracker crumb mixture into the bottom of a 9″x13″ pan. (You do not need to grease the pan.).
  • Mix lemon Jello with 2 cups boiling water until Jello is dissolved.
  • Add cream cheese to Jello mixture, breaking cheese up with a potato masher or the beaters of an electric mixer.
  • In a chilled bowl (glass or metal work best) whip with electric mixer chilled evaporated milk with 1 tablespoon sugar until small peaks form. (Getting peaks to form is much easier if the bowl and milk are cold.).
  • Add Jello mixture to evaporated milk and continue to beat until well blended.
  • Pour over Graham cracker crust.
  • Chill until firm.

If you want to add a little more green to make it more fun, springing green sprinkles from the bakery section on the cheesecake.

Holiday Recipe~Mary Connealy’s Cinnamon Rolls

I just recently was introduced to Mary Connealy’s writings and  I just finished one of her amazing Novellas. I saw her post yesterday about this yummy recipe and asked if I could feature her recipe today. She said of course, so here we go!  
When you are finished with the recipe check out her Featured Ebook; Room At The Inn For Christmas! There is a direct link below to her website. Click on the photo on the book and you can learn how to purchase your copy today! Also check out all her other amazing writings. 

Cinnamon Rolls

24 Rhodes (Hy-Vee) frozen dinner rolls
½ cup sugar with ½ tsp cinnamon
½ cup nuts (I used 2 cups today)
1 3oz pkg butterscotch pudding (dry powder)
½ cup (1 stick) butter
½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar

The recipe calls for greasing a 9×13 pan (I use non stick Reynolds wrap it’s easier to take out of pan). But I use a cast iron skillet. It makes a super cute way to serve the rolls. one large skillet will hold about a dozen rolls so you’ll need to or cut the recipe in half (that’s what I do, we don’t need 24 rolls!)
Sprinkle sugar mixture over the top, then the nuts followed by the pudding. Melt the butter and brown sugar in a small pan. Pour this mixture over the top of the pan. Make a tent with aluminum foil and leave overnight. Remove tent, bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Turn out and serve. (I use the tenting foil as a base to turn the rolls out onto.

“Welcome to Heywood, Oregon where a lonely woman comes home to find healing, hope and love under the bright light of the town’s old Star Inn this Christmas season.”
